Carmen de Burgos, an enterprising and versatile Spanish woman who lived intensely in the first third of the 20th century. She is a teacher, normal school teacher, writer, journalist, translator, lecturer and defender of women‘s rights. A cross-border woman with a wide cultural background, she displayed an intense work that crossed borders and left a mark in Latin America. This renowned figure with international projection, better known by the pseudonym Colombine, returned from her tour of Argentina and ended up in the Canary Islands. The purpose of this work is to study the stay in the Canary Islands of Carmen de Burgos and to know the cultural echo that she aroused in the insular reality. This research is part of the epistemological context of the historical sciences. We use the methodology of historical studies, with the interpretive technique of documentary analysis. As scientific support we use hemerographic and bibliographic sources.
